Why Should You Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?

Hiring a truly experienced car accident attorney can help you get the most out of your case while safeguarding your legal rights.

We are here to handle every part of your case, including navigating the complicated legal claim and paperwork.

How Do You Handle Medical Expenses If You Are Unable to Work After a Car Wreck?

Medical expenses can pile up for car accident victims when their injuries prevent them from working. Initially in Pennsylvania if you or the car you are in has auto insurance your medical expenses will be covered under personal injury protection or PIP coverage – regardless of fault.

Once the PIP coverage is exhausted for your medical claim, then the order of priority goes to your own health insurance, if there is no health insurance the responsible other party is liable for the medical bills owed. The process of getting your medical bills related to a car crash paid can be very complicated and include many phone calls to medical providers, billers and potentially collections – which can be a mess if you do not completely understand the process.

Financial instability related to injuries and medical bills from a car crash can tempt injured victims to accept a fast and low settlement offer – something insurance companies love. However, the best thing to do is let our law firm determine who was at fault for your injuries and fight for you to get the most money the law allows.

Our skilled lawyers can work to help you get the best medical care with no upfront costs, deal with the medical billing related to your crash, and even get medical billing reductions at the end of your case. Putting these things in our hands will allow you to focus on your recovery while we handle your case.

Are You Experiencing Pain and Suffering After a Car Accident?

A car crash can change your life drastically. Pain and suffering as a direct result of a car crash can make even the simplest things in life, like walking, sitting, standing difficult. Losing the pleasures of living life compounds that pain and while it is difficult to put an amount for this type of suffering this is the only way we can get justice in Pennsylvania. During this difficult and trying period in your life, you also need an attorney and legal team who will treat you and your family with respect, compassion, and care.

Because of the abstract nature of putting monetary value on the suffering and pain that affects the quality of your life – an experienced car accident lawyer is of utmost importance. Having an extensive understanding of these types of cases, the injuries suffered, prior verdicts and settlements can give you some sense of fair and full value for your claim.

Our team understanding every nuance of car accident claims in Pennsylvania. We can help you get maximum dollar compensation for your physical pain, mental anguish, stress, humiliation, shame, and disfigurement. In addition, the victim's spouse or family members may also be eligible for compensation due to lost companionship and income.

How Do You Deal With Insurance Companies After an Auto Accident?

Do you believe the insurance company is truly on your side? If you do, I may have a bridge to sell you, don’t be fooled! Insurance companies may delay, deny or settle your claim for a low amount so they can help their own bottom line. You need to really be careful, honestly do not even speak with the other person's insurance company before consulting with a car accident lawyer.  

As a longtime car accident attorney, Jonathan Marx says, "Don't sign anything or say anything to the insurance company. Level the playing field by contacting our team first."

KaplunMarx is experienced in dealing with large insurance companies and their armies of lawyers, and we know how they operate.

Do I Have a Good Car Accident Case?

The severity of your injuries, who was to blame, and available insurance coverages can all influence whether you have a case where you are able to collect compensation for your injuries.

The best way to find out if you have a good car accident case is to call KaplunMarx Attorneys at Law in Bala Cynwyd at (610) 467-3296 for a free case review, we can examine all the relevant factors of your situation to help determine if you have a good car accident case.

What is the Value of My Car Accident Case?

Valuation of a case involves looking at a whole host of factors that play a role in determining what the true value of our claim may be. Below is a non-exhaustive list of common factors that can have the greatest impact on the value of your car accident case:

- The severity of your injuries

- The extent of medical treatment, i.e. chiropractic, physical therapy, pain management, surgery

-Your inability to work – wage loss

- Scarring from the injuries

- Future loss of earnings capacity

- Future medical care costs

- How your accident has affected your everyday life

- Insurance coverage

- Punitive damages

- Many other factors

If an accident lawyer tells you on day 1 of your case what your claim is worth, walk away. Accident claims take time to mature, including seeing the extent of injury, treatment and a whole host of other factors before a value for your claim can be made. However, once you have recovered from the injuries, or you have recovered as much as possible, your car accident lawyer will gather all the appropriate evidence, medical records, medical bills, and reports needed to make a solid case against the insurance company. The attorney can then open negotiations with the insurance company – the goal is a settlement that is fair and just. However, if the insurance company does not provide a fair offer, we can then file a lawsuit on your behalf. With many years of experience and an excellent reputation, our lawyers are able to help determine if the settlement offer is fair, or if the case needs to be taken to court to try to get more compensation for you.

How to Pick a Car Accident Attorney in Bala Cynwyd

Do your homework and ask questions before hiring a car accident lawyer to handle your case. Read reviews. Reviews can give you insight as to how you will be treated by the law firm's staff. Consider their track record, reputation, settlements, and verdicts, as well as if they are experienced in personal injury litigation. Of course, any attorney can claim to handle personal injury matters, but success in court for serious injuries and accidents often relies on having the right lawyer represent you.

The lawyers at KaplunMarx have provided best-in-class representation for people who have been injured in car accidents throughout Pennsylvania. We pride ourselves on aggressive representation, first-class service, and getting outstanding results for people who have been hurt in car crashes.  The entire team at KaplunMarx personal injury lawyers have a deep level of understanding regarding Pennsylvania law and fight with insurance companies to get our clients maximum compensation each and every day.

Plus, you have zero risk in speaking with our law firm related to your car crash – the legal consultation is 100% free and we don’t get paid unless we get you money.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer in Bala Cynwyd?

You'll be happy to know that KaplunMarx does not charge for the consultation or an hourly rate to handle your case. Instead, we get a contingency fee - meaning the fee will be a percentage of the settlement or verdict money at the end of the case. This payment arrangement allows injured victims to get the legal help they need without paying any money upfront. It also ensures that we work exceptionally hard to get maximum dollar for our client’s because that is how we get paid as well.

Types of Accidents We Handle

Our attorneys can handle just about any car accident case where a person is injured throughout Pennsylvania. No two accidents are the same, so we examine every detail of the case to ensure that their clients receive the maximum compensation.

Accidents Involving Trucks

Tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, vans, and other commercial vehicles are involved in some of the most deadly truck crashes. Trucking corporations "lawyer up," immediately assigning teams of corporate attorneys to defend them, so hiring an experienced truck accident lawyer is crucial.

Accidents Where You are the Passenger

Many individuals who have been hurt as passengers are hesitant to file a lawsuit because they incorrectly assume they would have to sue their friend or loved one who was driving. In reality, you're suing their insurance carrier, and it's not fair to expect you to cover the costs on your own. After all, drivers pay millions to insurance companies to cover the expenses in the case of an accident.

Multiple-Vehicle Collisions

Multi-car accidents may occur in various ways, and KaplunMarx attorneys handle all forms of serious injury collisions. Here are a few examples: head-on crashes, lane crossings, rear-end collisions, sideswipes, rollovers, and T-bone collisions.

Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving contributes to deadly collisions that result in severe and often lifelong injuries. It is considered distracted driving to eat in the car, talk on the phone, apply cosmetics, or fiddle with the radio while driving.

Hazardous Road Accidents

Accidents can be brought on by hydroplaning in a water pool on the highway or ice patches that cause sliding. We also handle cases involving poorly built roadways, intersections, and construction zones.

Other Accidents

We want to help you get the compensation you deserve no matter what kind of accident you were involved in. We also assist work-related injury victims who were driving or riding in a vehicle while working.

Types of Car Accident Injuries We Work With

At first, you may not realize the full extent of your injuries or treatment requirements. To ensure you get the money you need for medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering, we can examine all of the medical records and help determine if future medical treatment will be needed. The most common injures we come across after a car crash in are as follows:

Head and Brain Injuries

The most common severe injuries that car accident victims suffer are head injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Head injuries can range from concussions to comas, resulting in long-term physical and cognitive problems.

Neck, Back, and Spinal Cord Injuries

Some back and neck injuries are not immediately apparent after serious car accidents, such as whiplash. Spinal cord injuries can cause partial or complete paralysis, which is one of the most frightening things that can happen to anyone.

Shoulder Injury

If your shoulder pain persists, you may need surgery and long-term physical therapy. Unfortunately, the future cost of surgery might not always be clear, resulting in astronomical medical bills.

Leg and Knee Injury

Injuries to your legs or knees can make it impossible to carry out daily activities. You may be forced to use crutches, a cane, a walker, or a wheelchair. You are also at risk of developing arthritis if you sustain injuries to your knee, ankle, or other limbs.

Wrongful Death

We know no amount of money can replace the loss of a family member, but we want to ensure you receive the just compensation and future financial stability you deserve. An experienced legal team is very necessary for these types of cases.

Other Types of Injuries

Car accidents can result in a variety of severe and even lifelong injuries. Our lawyers can also assist you with cases involving broken bones, fractures, and severe injuries such as amputations, paralysis, burns, and eyesight damage.

Negligence in Car Accident Cases

When a vehicle wreck occurs and someone is injured, one of the first steps in pursuing compensation is determining who may be liable for the person’s injuries. Most car accident claims are brought under the legal theory of negligence. The negligence theory requires four criteria be met to establish a viable claim.

First, the at-fault driver must have owed the claimant a duty of care. All motorists are required to drive with reasonable prudence to avoid harming or injuring others. Once a duty is established, the injured person has to show that the at-fault driver violated this duty in some way, such as by texting while driving.

Next, there must be a direct correlation between the at-fault driver’s violation and the person’s injuries. In short, if the at-fault driver acted negligently, but their negligence did not actually injure the claimant, the case would likely not hold up in court. Finally, once duty, breach, and causation have been established, the claimant must be able to show that their injuries caused them to suffer damages for which they are entitled to compensation. We can help someone establish a well-supported negligence claim to recover their damages.

Examples of Driver Negligence

Auto collisions can be the adverse outcomes of a wide range of negligent driving behaviors. Some of the leading factors in these accidents are speeding, drunk driving, failing to yield, distracted driving, and reckless driving. Outside factors can also contribute to a crash, such as defective vehicle manufacturing or poor roadway maintenance.

Time Limit for Vehicle Accident Lawsuits in Pennsylvania

After a car accident, the injured person has a limited amount of time in which to contact a lawyer and file a lawsuit with the civil courts. Under 42 Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes § 5524, this deadline, or statute of limitations, is two years.

The two-year time window goes into effect on the date of the crash. Exceptions to the statutory deadline could apply in certain cases, such as if the person injured is a minor. When a child under the age of 18 is injured in a wreck, they have until they turn 20 years old to file a civil lawsuit. A knowledgeable attorney could explain the statute of limitations that applies to a claimant’s case.
